My buddy really wants a new laptop, and has decided that he wants a mac. The problem is, he does a LOT of work with big spreadsheets in excel, and from my own experience, Excel for Mac cannot handle these large spreadsheets. When i mentioned this problem to him, he said, "oh no problem - i'm only going to use windows anyway". When i asked why then did he want a mac, he replied, "Becuase i want a thin, fast computer" It seems to me that he would be better off buying a PC laptop. Can anyone suggest a fast thin PC alternative to a macbook pro?
